Ashley was incredibly helpful and responsive during the entire booking process. Her home is great for a group of people, plenty of space inside and outside. It was lovely to have views of both the lake and the farmland out the back. Private and quiet too.

Everything you need for a low-fuss, easy holiday at the lake.

We had a lovely week away and Ashely's advice on where to go and what to do with a family was fantastic. The house had plenty of room and there was more than enough there to keep the kids entertained. We can't wait to go back!

Many thanks for the use of your Lake home over the weekend. Our trip was very enjoyable. Your beautiful home was perfect for our catch up with friends. The weather gods smiled on us and we all had a fantastic time.
The trampoline and lambs over the back fence were great for the kids. The All Blacks live on TV kept the guys happy.
The bush walks, fruit ice creams by the lake and the air stream trailer café close by were favourites for all, not to mention the tranquility for yoga early each morning on the wooden platform just across the little bridge.
We are all very grateful for having discovered a little bit of the Lake Tarawera region and the beauty it has to offer.
We have come away refreshed and would love to return one day, hopefully in the not too distant future. It is truly a magic spot you have. Thank you for sharing it with us.

The kids thoroughly enjoyed the games room and having the boat ramp so close is a definite added bonus! Ashley was an absolute pleasure to deal with and was very prompt with replying to queries, as well as offering us alot of useful information on the surrounding area which is fabulous for people who are out of towners. Thank you again for a perfect stay Ashley!

We traveled to New Zealand from Australia in July this year with another family and our young children and were lucky enough to stay at the Jolly Lake house. We had never booked through a holiday homes website before and we were hesitant especially since it was overseas but right from our first inquiry we found Ashley to be warm and genuine with all the assistance she offered while we planned our trip.

We found the lake house to be exactly as described and from the moment we entered we knew we would be enjoying our stay. I can see how the lake house would be fantastic place to stay during the summer with it's close proximity to the lake, however our winter trip was delightful, the house was warm and cozy there was plenty of heaters and electric blankets etc but who can beat the warmth of a real fire which we definitely enjoyed. Our children enjoyed the trampoline, the local park and especially the sheep in the paddock behind the house.

We visited local attractions such as the buried village (quite interesting and a beautiful waterfall) and had an awesome dinner at The Landing restaurant. It was also close enough to Rotorua that we were able to drive there daily to visit other attractions such as Palm springs (patting the Lions was amazing), we enjoyed the Maori experience at Te pei and visited lots of hot springs, mud pools etc.

I would thoroughly recommend staying at the Jolly Lake house.

We enjoyed the beautiful views and the wonderful tranquil setting. The Location suited us perfectly being close to the boat ramp. We experienced a well equipped family home with comfortable bedrooms, very nice linen and spacious living areas, both inside and outside. The gazebo was a lovely treat too. We have very fond memories of a joyful Easter break with family and friends at the Jolly family lake house. Thank you Ashley for your helpfulness.
Kind regards
Helen

We had a really really fantastic time here at Jolly Lake House. All rooms were very lovely and warm, and especially the second floor lounge has a great view of Lake Tarawera. Convenient BBQ, the kayak and life jackets, the beautiful moon in the evening, comfy outdoor furniture, green backyard, brand new utensiles, etc., everything was great. All my guests from overseas were totally satisfied with the 4 day stay here. Most of all, Ashley, the landlady, was very nice. She kindly let us know how we could fully enjoy ourselves and relax during the time at Jolly lake house. Thank you very much and see you again!

The kids loved lounging out in the bean bags watching movies after a big day out. It was also fun spending time playing table tennis & table soccer in the garage. The house is tastefully decorated and we really enjoyed our time here.

Very nice home.
Plenty of comfortable seating areas, upstairs with gorgeous view, and at back and front of house. Could follow the sun around.
Told it slept 8 but could only find 6 beds, until our last morning!
